Can someone recommend some really awesome chalk? We have the prang ambrite chalk.. and while it's OK.. it's just OK ;) They're buttery and nice and all.. yet somewhat mundane. I'd love a variety of colors to blend together on the chalkboard- anyone know where I might find them?
Expensive is alright (sigh) so long as it reflects the quality!
Magic Cabin offers chalk that is very vivid. I think they call it Flipper chalk. They have big ones and thin ones, depending on your preference. Decent pricing, too. http://www.magiccabin.com/colored-chalkboard-chalks_p194.html One note, it does break easily, which is to be expected of chalks and pastels, in general (my art teacher best friend tells me).

Taking what works and leaving the rest
Yep. I usually break them up when I get them.. makes shading easier than having to use an entire stick at once!
